    https://www.visitscotland.com/see-do/tours/driving-road-trips/north-coast-500/ I'm thinking of doing it next easter (ish) time, so any tips would be most welcome :)
  5. Alfa Giulia
    So my 2.0 super is asking me to change the engine oil, fine, it's booked in next week. In the meantime can I do a 500 mile roundtrip? That won't cause any problems will it?
  6. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I just watched the live auction https://online.handh.co.uk/m/view-auctions/live-sale/id/89/ No connection with them myself, but they had a GTV6 I was interested in. Then at the last minute a 1972 Giulia turns up (with a valid MOT) , and sells for a bargain £7,500!

    hey all.... we recently bought our Brera privately (risky I know!) as a replacement for my partners Abarth (which is for sale on e-bay!) , and every year we take a road trip with our friends to Germany and the Nurburgring.... we usually go in my octavia vRS, which has many mods to make it a...

    This Fiat 500 Has An Alfa Romeo 4C Engine At The Back And RWD
  9. Alfa Giulia
    I am very much interested in a Guilia but will not purchase a 4-cyl. vehicle and do not want the Quadrifoglio because of the HP rating and the fact that it does not come with a sunroof as an option due to the fiber roof panel. Does anyone know if Alfa Romeo has plans to release a Guilia with a...
  10. Alfa MiTo
    After 20 minutes of attempting to get onto the fiat forum I have given up and wondered if the 1.4 litre engine problem may have similar causes to the mito? My daughters fiat 500 loses power sometimes- put your foot down and it just doesn't pick up. Happens only occasionally and usually in first...

    So had the pleasure of driving a well maintained FIAT 500 thru Tuscany and the Chianti valley and then had the most amazing lunch and wine tasting afterwards. If you ever in the region. I would highly recommend it.
  12. International Motor Sport
    Is anyone else following the Fernando Alonso story about him doing the one off race in the Indy 500? It's not something I normally watch / monitor but I find this story fascinating, especially the bits about the technical differences and general set up Fernando Alonso: Indy 500 'horrible laps'...

    So my daughters 2013 Fiat 500 needs a new gear box. She's done 72,000 miles in it, and it's 4 years old so it's not surprising even though it's been serviced every year/on the miles. Anyway - As it's now a 4 year old, 72k Fiat 500 - I don't want to spend a fortune on a pucker new Fiat gear box...

    The missus needs replacement city car for her Smart Roadster as needs back seats. What would you go for out of the Fiat 500 Abarth (595) or Mini Cooper S (JCW) or she may just get a newer Cooper S without the JCW upgrades? I'm looking forward to test driving them both to be honest, I have driven...

    My girlfriends 2013 500 1.2 Pop is in at Chatz today for it's 60 000km service. We asked them to sort out a broken gear lever boot (There's a plastic ring which hold the bottom down which has broken in two) and have a look at a front suspension rattle. Apparently both are common 500 issues and...

  17. Alfa MiTo
    Love my Alfa. So much so that I want my wife to sell her Qhashqai and go Italian too. Question is ,as she does all short runs a diesel is unsuitable and I am worried about posts on here about multi air failures which the 1.4 I am looking at uses. Should I be concerned ?

    According to IOL, Fiat's finally bringing in the TwinAir. Five years after it won the International Engine of the Year award in 2011... 2016's new cars - here's what's coming | IOL

    Car parts prices: best and worst - IOL Motoring Industry News | IOL.co.za If I remember correctly, this was the case for the 159 too a few years ago - one of the cheapest cars to maintain in its segment. The Giulietta came in third in its group, with only the Corollas beating it. Very good for...

    So my wife's Fiat 500 went in last year Feb and had the brake pads replaced and disc skimmed. She told me the weekend that her car is making a loud noise when she brakes so I decided to check the brakes...the pads are completely worn, there is no pad left at all. I phoned Fiat and the guy told...
